Ship FGSS (LNG Fuel Supply System) refers to the use of LNG as the ship’s propulsion fuel.
As of January 1, 2020, due to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) environmental regulations, the sulfur content of ship fuel oil has been strengthened from 3.5% to 0.5%, and interest in ships using LNG as fuel is increasing. In line with this trend, the demand for systems that fuel LNG to ships is also increasing.
The main equipment of the LNG fuel delivery system consists of LNG fuel tanks storing LNG, vaporizers that raise the temperature of the cryogenic LNG to about 25 to 40 degrees Celsius, and LNG bunkering stations, connecting equipment that charges LNG.
In addition to the main equipment, additional equipment for up-pressure, such as pumps and compressors, may be installed before the vaporizer to meet the gas pressure required by the engine.
A control system (FGSS Control System) is applied to integrate these key equipment, which operates the entire FGSS equipment.
Valmax Technology specializes in providing energy solutions and provides total solutions from design to manufacture and commissioning of FGSS for ships.
